A Beyond Perfect Wedding!
It is hard to mention Felina and not mention Carissa, a true pleasure to work with and the nicest person you will ever meet. As the head of events, Carissa played a pivotal role in ensuring that every detail exceeded our expectations. Her expertise and dedication were evident in the seamless coordination of our ceremony and reception, making our day truly magical. We could have not done this without her!
The culinary experience at Felina was nothing short of extraordinary. The menu left a lasting impression on our guests, who couldn't stop raving about the delicious food. We also cannot stop talking about how amazing the tasting was a few weeks before the wedding. It was truly a mini wedding in itself with other couples and families.
Frank, the maitre de, orchestrated the reception with finesse, ensuring that the service was impeccable.
A special thank you to Annie, our bridal attendant, whose unwavering attentiveness added an extra layer of comfort and joy to our day.
Felina, with its stunning venue, exceptional food, and outstanding service, surpassed all our dreams for the perfect wedding. Five stars don't seem enough to express our gratitude for the memories you've helped create.
We look forward to sharing many more memories at the restaurant!
Modern Black-Tie Worthy Wedding Venue in North Jersey
For background, we secured our date in October 2022 and anticipated meeting the guest minimum of 135 people for our onsite ceremony and black-tie reception. On our wedding day, we had approximately 100 guests; and the Felina allowed for us to allocate the remaining food and beverage minimum towards food and beverage enhancements (pre-ceremony champagne, additional food stations during cocktail hour, dessert enhancements for the guest tables, late night bites). Our guests were extremely pleased with the food and beverages offered throughout the evening, and we felt this was the most important part of the guest experience. We should also mention several of the items on the restaurant menu are offered as part of the standard wedding package and/or wedding enhancements, which is ideal for pre-wedding celebrations or future anniversaries with your future spouse!
During our wedding planning process, we enjoyed working with the onsite wedding coordinator and receiving their input as it related to our wedding day timeline. To our knowledge, the Felina team worked well with the other wedding vendors and were attentive to our wants and needs on the wedding day.
Although this is not the most affordable wedding venue in the area, we felt it was money well spent and we highly recommend this wedding venue for couples in the greater New York City / North Jersey area!
